The last few days Ive slipped back into mind, the mind of yesterdays regrets and future projections. Ive lost contact with my consciousness in
my now, and felt ive become open to all sorts of mind manipulations of origins unknown.
You slip back into mind the moment you made mind the problem, it’s not mind that’s the problem “It’s just doing its job” it’s the
programming of the mind through societies, cultures and beliefs that create attachments, attachments become obstacles and because of the programming
of the mind “You think you have a problem” you make is sound as if you need to gain something in order to stay present in the “Now” safe from
“manipulation” you don’t need to gain something “You need to drop something”
It seems to me that people love to anylize pages and pages of information to gain an understanding of something, something’s in life you have to
experience through insight to gain true understanding. You can run information through the mind all day and the only thing you gain is attachments.
Attachments to what you may ask? Words, Emotions, Feelings, beliefs, predictions…. The list goes on. Now you’re creating your own
problems/obstacles due to your own programming “your own analysis” you create a future that hasn’t happened yet, you create your own illusion.
Don’t run away from your mind and don’t let your mind run away from you, the mind is a brilliant tool when you use it in the “Now” the moment
the mind slips into the past or future, is the moment you become attached to something in the past or future. Drop it, let go and become present.
I hear people say time after time “It’s too hard to become present in the now, it’s too hard to become aware” when in reality the only hard
part is letting go of that belief, letting go of that attachment. It’s a lot harder analyzing pages and pages of information than it is to become
aware, not many people believe me because they are not ready to drop that belief.
Edit to add a few quotes.
"People who want a cure, provided they can have it without pain, are like those who favor progress, provided they can have it without change."
"Another illusion is that external events have the power to hurt you, that other people have the power to hurt you. They don't. It's you who give
this power to them"
"You've got to drop something. You've got to drop illusions. You don't have to add anything in order to be happy; you've got to drop something.
Life is easy, life is delightful. It's only hard on your illusions, your ambitions, your greed, your cravings"
"Understand the obstructions you are putting in the way of love, freedom, and happiness and they will drop. Turn on the light of awareness and the
darkness will disappear. Happiness is not something you acquire; love is not something you produce; love is not something you have; love is something
that has you."
